ESPN Bracketology: Panthers a No. 5 seed in latest Joe Lunardi bracket

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Last week, ESPN bracket specialist Joe Lunardi ranked Pitt as a No. 5 seed in his last projections. Since then, Pitt had the narrow loss to Syracuse on the road and a huge win against Clemson at home.

Those results meant the Panthers remained as a No. 5 seed this week in Lunardi's most recent projections that came out on Thursday.

Pitt has two more games since he will likely release another bracket - today's tilt against Maryland and Monday's big game against Duke. Win both of those somehow and I could see the Panthers vaulting up a seed ... maybe even two, depending on what happens to the teams around them.

One other cool note right now is that according to Lunardi's seedings, he has Robert Morris making the tournament as a rising No. 15 seed. That's obviously towards the lower end of the bracket, but it would be pretty cool to have another local team in there.
